My name is Frank Centinello, and I have wanted to explore the universe since I was young. Currently, I am in graduate school at the State University of New York at Buffalo, where I study estimation, guidance, navigation, and control. I also did my undergraduate work here in aerospace engineering. There’s no telling how long I will stick around here.
I spend my free time reading sci-fi, exercising, and hanging out too much. Cooking is fun for me too, but my variety is small right now. Other than that, I can be found in my advisor’s lab listening to music.
My graduate work is taking longer than usual because I love to travel. I spent a semester at the Technical University of Darmstadt, Germany. Also, I just found out that I got the approval to head to Valencia, Spain for this year’s Space Generation Congress. There, I will meet friends that I made working at NASA Glenn Research Center this past summer.
Working at NASA Glenn, I became interested in hypersonic propulsion. Hypersonic engines have the potential to be much more efficient than conventional rockets. When we master this technology, people will travel to space in much greater numbers. This is work that I want to contribute to in the future. The result will be that anyone can go to space!
